  1. Unknown user “CDDaemonUser” asking for password to run any programs with admin rights,...


    So I am using a Windows 10 Computer which I use to run a particular program which is important to my business. The program has to be run with admin rights. The computer never had any password before and I was able to run the program directly without any password.

    Yesterday I find that I am unable to run any program with admin rights including the one which I use as there is password prompt for some user called “CDDaemonUser” which I am unable to bypass.

    I can see that there are 2 users now on the system, myself and CDDAEMONUSER. I am logging in as myself without any password but even then I am being as for password for trying to run any programs with admin rights or making any changes to the system by Cddaemonuser.

    I tried a few methods on the internet for bypassing the password or changing user, but every methods eventually leads to a point where some setting has to be changed and it asks for the password.

    I have tried going back to a restore point or starting command prompt from the troubleshooting startup menu but everytime it asks me for the password.

    I really need to run the program, pls someone advise how I can fix this.

    Admin password unknown and missing files after upload


    Ok, I know these questions have been asked, but I have tried everything I can understand.
    Need to be spoken like a noob - step by step please.
    Win10 put on my system everything initially fine, then discovered files missing - tried to install a recover program to be frustrated by a prompt to input an admin password with User [USER-PC\USER]
    I have tried every password ever used.
    I have tried going to cmd prompt
    I cant install anything to circumnavigate because I cant get past this dialogue.

    any suggests?

    Programs asking me for system admin and user admin passwords


    I'm having some issues with my upgrade to win 10.

    Programs that need elevated access are now asking me for both the Sys Admin and my local admin password.

    Of course, the sys admin has no password and my local admin does. So no matter what I do, I get it wrong.

    Earlier today, I was trying to reset the tiles in my start menu to default.

    I followed directions I found on the web, activated the sys admin account, went to the sys admin account, the users app data tabletray..... But I kept getting the error that something " was already in use" and I couldn't copy all the files.
    I went ahead and pasted what I had in my local admin and standard user account.
    then I disabled the sys admin account.

    Now, some programs icons I installed earlier today have disappeared. I have to go to an admin account to gain access and turn them on (MSI afterburner.....). And any program that needs admin access, I'm not sure if I'm giving it access or it's just starting without admin access. Seems like the next time I re-boot or log off, I have to do it all over again.

    when a program asks for elevated access, it shows sys admin account AND local admin account above the password box. Is that normal? I could have sworn it only had my local admin account listed before.

    If I have to re-install, where do I get the free win10 upgrade again? are those files saved on my pc?
